Welcome To: Sunday Afternoon Pause
I have some exciting things planned for us in the New Year, things that will refresh, restore and inspire us. For starters, I want to invite you to my new Monthly Newsletter –
Sunday Afternoon Pause
Starting this Sunday! It is about removing ourselves to a quiet place and welcoming Him in. Few things nourish us more than time set apart to follow the thoughts of our hearts. Framed by our beliefs, hopes and our Bibles as our faithful companion we will spend time getting a clearer picture of His promises and His character.
This illustration out of my yearly devotion book, Streams in the Desert has cleared my path for waiting on Him many times. May it lead you to still moments with Him, for there is always peace and strength to be found when we draw near to God.
Often the Lord calls us aside from our work for a season. There is no time lost is such waiting hours. Fleeing from his enemies, the ancient knight found that his horse needed to be reshod. Prudence seemed to urge him on without delay, but higher wisdom taught him to halt a few minutes at the blacksmith's forge by the way, to have the shoe replaced; and although he heard the feet of his pursuers galloping hard behind, he waited those minutes until his charger was refitted for his flight. And then, leaping into his saddle just as they appeared a hundred yards away, he dashed away from them with the fleetness of the wind, and knew that his halting had hastened his escape. So often God bids us tarry ere we go, and fully recover ourselves for the next stage of the journey and work.

After Pausing we will make, give and share! For this Monthly Newsletter I have some easy and fun DIY crafts planned. This month it is a handmade Valentine’s Day card. There will be recipes to enjoy like my Candy Bar Brownies and great giveaways! Lastly, some of you have asked and YES! I am planning my annual Central Coast Autumn Picnic for next fall! So please join me this Sunday for Sunday Afternoon Pause.
From my home to yours, Linda
